Whoa, we’re halfway there…

and we’re kind of living on a prayer, but we’ll make it, I swear. ๐Ÿ™‚

DIY Polished Concrete Countertops 1

While this past weekend of DIY counter top making didn’t come without a few bumps in the road, Jeff still managed to get all of the glass broke, and most of the concrete mixed with the pigment, and poured into the mold.

Here’s a few photos of my man hard at work. I’m one lucky gal.

Well this one is obviously not of Jeff, but you get the point.

Poor guy. He’s gotten so used to a camera in his face when he works that he’s really mastered the art of ignoring me. Not sure if that’s a good thing.

So towards the end of the long morning of work, Jeff realized after pouring part of the concrete mix into the small bar mold that he wasn’t going to have enough to finish that part and thus would have to start that one part over on another day.

Yea, it looks like kind of a mess right now, but Jeff assures me it will come out all nice and pretty. As for the bar, Jeff will rebuild that mold next to the others and re-pour the concrete mixture.

It’s a good feeling to make some headway on this long project and I’m hoping we have new counter tops before we know it!

  1. Since you’ve been furloughed will you be giving Jeff a break and finishing the counter tops for him with your new found spare time?!

  2. Seriously, I can’t believe how crafty and good he is at the DIY stuff! We have been at our house for almost 6 years and have not completed one thing we said we’d do when we bought it… lucky girl Anamarie!
